Blind Enthusiasm Brewing Releases Kook Birds Gin Barrel-Aged Lager

EDMONTON, AB – Blind Enthusiasm Brewing has announced the latest release in its series of limited edition barrel-aged beers.

Kook Birds (7.2% abv):

The second version of Kook Birds is a participant in our Lagerization Project. Instead of using an ale yeast this batch of Kook Birds was brewed as a lager with our Uncharted Citra recipe. As with the original beer we collaborated with our kooky pals over at Strathcona Spirits and aged this beer in their Pinot Gin barrels for 24 weeks. The result is fruity and herbal with bold gin character. This version is sharper and more direct than the first release thanks to its Lagerization Project origins.

Kook Birds is available now at Biera Market, the Blind Enthusiasm online shop, and select beer retailers.
